It's important to talk about the quality products and people that make up our industry. The team at APL work to ensure these products make it to an Aussie dinner plate.

Get some Pork on your Fork

The get some Pork on your fork program focuses on creating demand for fresh pork with Australian consumers.

The program launched a new brand campaign in June 2024, focusing on addressing key barriers to pork by asking consumers “Por qué?” (English translation: why?).  This campaign introduces a legendary character, Ramon Jamon to challenge Aussie eating habits, while landing messages communicating pork’s versatility and how easy it can be to cook. 

The campaign is airing in regional and metro cities across Australia on free to air TV and radio, as well as nationally on Foxtel, catch up TV, YouTube and social media. This campaign also features out of home placements, such as bus shelter advertising panels and train station billboards. To support the campaign, publisher partnerships are in place to ensure we can give consumers recipes that inspires them to ask por qué about their recipe routine. 

You can find recipe inspiration and more on our consumer website or check out our social media to watch the new campaign. 

Valuable Provenance

The Valuable Provenance Program was created to add sustainable value to the industry. We do this by differentiating Australian pork from imported pork.

Most consumers are unaware they are buying ham or bacon made from imported pork. Our focus is to raise awareness of this fact so that consumers can make an educated choice when looking for ham, bacon or pre-cooked pork made with Australian pork.

The program recently completed a trial awareness campaign in Adelaide. There were two key messages for this campaign.

  1. The majority of ham and bacon is imported
  2. Look for a nearly full bar chart on the country-of-origin label to ensure you’re buying Australian pork

The campaign was deemed a success at message out-take on the areas above and increased sales above national sales in the trial market. Next steps are being planned for localised roll outs. Ultimately, once awareness has been established, the program will look to create positioning on WHY consumers should buy Australian pork over imported pork and around our industry’s leading standards.

The program will continue to celebrate ham and made using Aussie pork. Events like InterNational Bacon Day and the lead up to Christmas are key to this activity.
